Examples of whitewashed in a Sentence

  1. Tara Houska:

    Greeting indigenous Code Talkers in front of that portrait, knowing Andrew Jackson is responsible for the Trail of Tears, is disrespectful -- it's worse than that. It's appallingly out of touch, this isn't the first time he's attempted to slur Elizabeth Warren by calling her Pocahontas, who was a real person, and he diminished an entire demographic of native women to a single figure in history who's been largely fetishized and whose traumatic story has been whitewashed by the American narrative.

  2. White House spokesman Josh Earnest:

  3. Raumesh Akbari:

Unfortunately, the controlling party is attempting to erase historical fact in favor [of] whitewashed falsehoods.

  4. Bill Maher:

But it's a joke because it makes you think of people who wake up offended and take orders from Twitter. And their oversensitivity has grown tiresome.
